2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Review Ratings
2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 4WD Review
Its a comfy and smooth ride that get pretty good gas milage for a SUV
It doesnt have a third row seats. will not fit 3 car seats.
One Nice Ride — the car was originaly my wifes. we had some kids and it became my car, at first I wasnt a fan of mitsubishi. Honestly, the more i drove it I relized how lucky i was to have it. Not a gas guzzler and spaceouse enough for a family of 4. Only in the shop for routine maintenance. and goes great in the snow
Primary Use: Commuting to work
2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD Review
Outdoorsman or woman is the perfect owners
Slow hard suspension unconfortable despite leather interior
Good Car For People Living A Bit From The Road And Has To Get To Work In Any Weather — Heavy lumbering beast, however reliable. It has been a great outdoors companion. All the time i have owned it it has performed without any problems at all, the gearbox is outstanding and the low rpm engine fantastic. in short great for the outdoors but not an suv, a terrain car
Primary Use: Family transportation
2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport ES 4WD Review
Great multi-purpose truck: daily driver, family vacations, off-road, snow, trips to Home Depot / Lowe's, etc. Took everything I could throw at her and she treated me well.
Gas mileage wasn't great. The 3.5 may have been better on that than the 3.0. Not many after-market kits, but a solid truck even when stock.
2003 Monstero — I owned my Mitsubishi Monstero Sport (intentional spelling mistake) for ~10 years. We bought it new from CarMax, when the Dulles CarMax still sold new Mitsubishi cars / SUVs. Until recently, I never had to pay much for upkeep. After about the 9 year / 125,000 mark, that's when the repair bills started to mount. But, for the first 9 years, that truck was GREAT! I kept up with my friend's lifted Jeep that rode on 33s through NC mud. Aside from the 2' Snowmaggedon monster drifts, the Monstero went through snow w/o a problem, up to ~8 - 9". Excellent daily driver, family car, long-trips, etc. I used it like a truck, too; filling the back with whatever I could from Home Depot / Lowe's or strapping 4x8 sheets of plywood to the roof rack. It was an affordable alternative to the Chevy s-10 Blazer, Ford Explorer and Dodge Durango. I liked those other models, too, but I couldn't get close to the deal I got on the Monstero. Same with the Pathfinder & 4Runner; nice models, but the Monstero / CarMax deal was too good to pass up. At 6' / 250, the Monstero was always a comfortable ride. My friends, all of whom are in the 5'10" - 6'2" range, could comfortably sit in the passenger seat and back seats w/o a problem. 137,500 miles

Reviews From Other Years
Performances, almost good, the transmission is bad. The build is very good, all ensamble are fine, more than 10 years and still good. Good appearance. In the cost, the refactions are pretty expensives... Read More
